“I served for a time as the only Democratic legislator from Lake County in the Illinois House or Senate. We’ve worked hard to change Lake County from deep Republican red to Democratic blue. People are understanding more and more that Democrats reflect Lake County values…and the Republican Party simply doesn’t. Lake County Democrats are developing a strong infrastructure to make the phone calls, canvass the neighborhoods, raise the money, train the candidates, do the mailings, and get out the vote. These things are crucial to our mission of making sure people support our candidates and elected officials.
There’s a lot to do, and we’re excited to continue the hard but critical work of electing Democrats in Lake County.
